"I bought this car used in 2002. It has been so reliable. I am only giving it up because my dear niece has a 2 year old and I know this will be a great, safe family car for her. I have done every 5,000 service. Taken it to Foreign Carriage in Thousand Oaks for all since 2002 and has been so happy with this car. Molly"

Pros: "Safe, reliable, stiff ride reduces car sickness"

Cons: "Expensive to repair"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Overall this has been a very great car for us with two little boys, a dog and lots of travel. In fact we are only replacing it because it has not been great in snow and the kids like skiing. This model has had a compression issue that has been replaced and odds are will need to be replaced again. It is still driving strong though. Volvos are workhorses although repairs are pricey."

"I bought my 1998 Volvo V70 GLT a few months ago.17 yr old car that drives like new. I bought it from the original owners and they maintained it at Volvo dealer up until the last few years. The only things I have had to do to it was normal maintenance that the previous owner had let go ie. brakes, replacing timing belt, water pump etc. I did these as preventative measures because I believe it's a keeper. Need to replace 1 front fender because of a rust hole but that's the only spot on the car that has rusted. The car has 214 000m/344 000km and works like a dream. I can hardly wait to try her in the snow. I have taken it on many road trips and the gas mileage is much better than the Dodge van I had owned and it's much more comfortable on long trips. The turbo makes passing a dream..I'd really like to know how fast it will go...lol I LOVE THIS CAR! :)"
